    After agreeing to help the mysterious Mickey Mouse, Zachary and his Spirits returned to the better comfort of privacy to Zachary's inn room. Oddly, no one paid mind to a walking, talking, anthropomorphic mouse. However, compared to creatures from Seven, he probably was nothing short of normal. With the agreement to help Mickey on his quest and after the attack of the mysterious 'Nobodies', Zachary was determined to help out. Though Mickey wasn't willing to share everything he knew, he insisted it was for good reason. He did feel bad to not be able to say more, but it was something that could wait. Zachary's Spirits, however, were not so easily swayed as they wanted to know what Mickey was keeping to himself, but Zachary trusted the mouse regardless. That and Astral the Star Fairy was already making friends with the friendly mouse creature.

    Aquila had returned to the Celestial Realm, his energy exhausted. However, Leo the Lion, aka Ajani stuck around to be of help and listen to more of Mickey's story. They were now in Zachary's room, with Zachary at the desk chair and Mickey on the foot of the bed.

    "As I was saying, the Nobodies follow the master of the stronger one that summons them. My quest was to find them and stop them from causing harm to others. But I have no idea which member or members are here. I was trying to track them down when I ran into you. I did see you fight that night, and I was really relieved you could hold your own. You're magic is really, really impressive." the mouse replied with enthusiasm.

    Zachary rubbed the back of his neck modestly, unable to stop from smiling. "Oh, why thank you, but I can't take all the credit. Without Leo and the others, it would have been another story..." Zachary commented, looking to Leo.

    The white lion remained in the corner, his arms folded as he listened silently and glanced at Mickey. Though he knew the mouse was not responsible for the attack, the mystery around him still warranted his observation and vigilance. Something about the mouse seemed 'otherworldly'...

    Mickey could sense the suspicion, so he tried to focus on the more friendlier Zachary and his companion Astral, who sat beside Mickey, unafraid. "Be that as it may, the Organization has more abilities beyond just controlling Nobodies. They are their minions, so we need to be ready for whatever they throw at us." Mickey mentioned.

    Sitting at the desk area, Zachary had his chair reversed, his hands on the back of it to look at Mickey. "So what can we expect? Have you seen the attacker? Could you describe him?" he asked.

    Mickey gave some thought to this. "Gosh... Well, he would have a cloak similar to mine... but much taller, like your size." he replied.

    "That narrows it down..." Zachary grumbled with a roll of his eyes, pointing out that described anyone who was human. "What I meant was, what do you know about the ones who are controlling these Nobodies?"

    "Well, simple enough, the Organization consists of thirteen members-- or did at some point, but are constantly changing. Most of them are the higher nobodies I mentioned before. " Mickey explained, "I would be able to recognize them if I saw them. But there is something I should tell you. These Nobodies will try to trick you. While they tend to retain the memories they made as humans, the feelings they display are merely an act. Especially if they further the Organization's goals. So don't be taken aback by their tricks. "

    Zachary could see the seriousness in the mouse's eye, which was hard to do since he looked so cherubic in nature. "I'll do my best," Zachary replied. Now curious, he swung himself off his chair and stood up. "Though do you mind if I ask you a personal question? I am expecting you have magic that can beat them? You have seen my magic, right? Can you show me yours?"

    Mickey's eyes light up a bit with surprise. "Oh? Well, I suppose I can," he said.

    Excited, Astral began to flutter into the air. Aye! Magic-magic! he cheered, wanting to see it too.

    He slid off the bed and landed onto the ground with a soft bounce. Carefully, he rolled up his sleeves and stretched his arms to loosen up. "It normally is difficult to defeat Nobodies or similar creatures without special tools. I, however, have one." he stated.

    Zachary watched closely as the mouse raised a hand, and bits of light began to sparkle from his hand. With a swift 'chime' and flash, an object magically appeared in his grasp. At first, Zachary thought it was a sword, but the design was unusual. The handle was an odd shape with guards on both sides, the handle in the center. It would stretch up instead of a narrow and sharp 'blade', it was like a smooth pole. At the end, the only part that could be considered sharp was a 'forked' protrusion from the pole, which resembled oddly enough the teeth of a key. The entire item looked like an oversized key.

    "A key?" Zachary replied, finding the concept of that as a weapon strange. "That's a weapon?"

    Mickey turned to him and nodded, proudly holding the key in his hand. "Yep! It's called a Keyblade! A special weapon that reflects the strengh of one's heart."

    Zachary couldn't help but be interested by that. Beyond the lovely star and night pattern of the mouse's Keyblade, he was interested in the concept of a weapon that reflected the personality of the wielder. "Really? Does it manifest your heart and feelings as magic ?" he asked.

    "Gosh, I suppose so," Mickey said with interest, looking at it. "Though its full potential is kind of unknown, Keyblades are almost alive. They choose their wielders too. There is alot of magic in it that gives it great power, including the power to vanquish enemies such as the Nobodies-- but also can save others as well. But I won't go too much into that."

    Zachary scratched his chin in thought as he looked at the key. "I see... so in general, your magic is kind of similar to what we call 'Requip' magic," he asked.

    "Um...I suppose so, " Mickey said shyly, and with that and a flick of his hand-- the mysterious Keyblade vanished from his grip as quickly as it appeared. "Although, I am a capable magician. I do know how to use magic outside of just swinging the key. So you can count on me for magical support."

    Zachary really enjoyed learning about Mickey's magic. He certainly was an interesting mouse, and friendly. Had Astral not been so willing to rest near him, he would of still had doubts. But that was quickly dismissed by Zachary-- that and the vision he saw with his Stargazer eyes didn't show any 'feelings' of malevolence in him. If anything, the exact opposite. Still, Zachary wasn't 100% sure how his eyes worked, and were still not under his control.

    If I may ask, what exactly was the magic you used?" Mickey asked, wanting to see Zachary's magic in return.

    It was a fair request, and one Zachary didn't feel the need to keep secret. Digging into his pocket, Zachary pulled out the keyring he had-- revealing the series of Celestial Spirit Keys he had. Ironic they both used 'keys' of some kind for their magics. "I'm a Celestial Wizard. I use keys that unlock the gates of the stars and constellations, which allow me to summon spirits from their world to help me. Leo and Aquila are such spirits," Zachary said as he showed Mickey the keys. The mouse looked interested at the different keys, their color or design-- and the insignias on each pertaining to each constellation. "Each spirit has its own key and with it, their own unique powers. While I cannot summon them without the keys, they are loyal friends and those I care about. Anyway, its my kind of summoning. But more importantly, I can use my own magic to make them stronger too."

    Taking the keys back to the safety of his pocket, Zachary smiled at Mickey. "I am also dabbling in new magic called the Arc of Cosmos-- but I haven't fully learned its secrets just yet. It's risky magic if used incorrectly, but in a worst-case scenario, I can use other magic to help out if I am without my keys." he explained.

    Mickey looked happy to see them and looked up to Zachary. "Gosh, I didn't realize such magic was like that here. Certainly different than where I am from." the mouse said.

    "And... where exactly are you from?" Ajani asked, speaking up from the corner where he was lounging against.

    A nervous tick of Mickey's ears came back to the focus on the lion who threatened to eat him. Even if it was a bluff, Zachary could only imagine how nervous it was for the smaller mouse to be in the presence of a hulking, large lion spirit. Especially one of Leo's caliber who could easily intimidate the most fearsome of enemies.

    "Oh, um-- ah, well, very far away. I'm not very familiar with things in Fiore, as you can imagine," Mickey answered, trying to keep his answer light.

    "You certainly aren't," Leo grumbled lightly as he stayed where he was.

    A grunt came from Zachary-- more for Leo's rather antisocial behavior. Even though he meant well, he had a hard time with other people for his mistrust in humans for so long. Zachary sometimes wondered how he even was able to make a pact with Leo at all.

    "Anyway, maybe we should focus more on the dangers and a plan to combat these 'Nobodies'?" Leo suggested, his tone becoming a bit more neutral for the interest of their meeting going on.

    "I guess so," Zachary sighed, realizing there was much at stake and they couldn't get too distracted. Still, it was nice to take the chance to know one another.

    A little unnerved by Leo, Mickey turned back to Zachary. "Your lion friend is right. We should focus on the problem at hand. If the Organization does attack again, we need to be ready. " the mouse agreed.

    Once more, Astral was completely lost on the topic going on. The cherubic like star didn't follow much of the dire monsters or suspicion in the room, but the little guy went floating up into the air and began to approach Leo-- attempting to turn his grumpy face into something more pleasant. The lion tried to ignore him and listen to the conversation.

    "If we knew what their goal was, we could at least hypothesize where they would be-- what they want and target to stop them ahead of time," Zachary thought aloud for them to hear as he held his chin. "Do you have any idea what they want with Rose Garden? "

    Mickey looked disappointed and shook his head. "No... I only just arrived to this town, following their trail. I have no idea what they are looking for here, or who. In the past, they were looking for specific hearts-- the light of hearts." the mouse explained.

    "The light of hearts...?" Zachary thought, the term sounding familiar, or something that struck a chord with him.

    The room was tense with the desire to discover the secret behind the Organization's goal. There was so much they didn't know-- either that or Mickey couldn't share more details. The concern of another attack was clear and very likely to happen sooner than later. Zachary kept running that saying in his head. "The light in hearts." Why did that resonate so much to him?

    "Mickey, what is the light that is people's hearts?" Zachary asked the mouse.

    The mouse looked up with interest, and thought himself, trying to describe the best way to say it. "Well, it goes back to an ancient legend of the people once had their hearts filled with light, but people would fight over it and darkness began to dwell in their hearts," Mickey explained, "The lights were entrusted to children and survived as others were consumed by darkness and destroyed each other. Why? Did you think of something?"

    Leo took an interest as he saw the deep look of concentration on his friend and master's face.

    "Well, what you call light-- it is possible they are referring to magic," Zachary said, "This is more of a belief than a legend, but when I was first learning magic, and old teacher was the first to tell me that magic is born in one's heart. If one believes in themselves, knowing its there even if you cannot see or know it... one can learn magic. It comes from unwavering belief. It starts with you. Point being its that same ideology that helps allow one to be able to use magic. Naturally, people take it at their leisure and use it differently, but the same principle applies. " he explained as simply as he could. "Point is if magic comes from one's heart... is that the 'light' they could be after?"

    Mickey listened carefully to what Zachary had to say, and the more he did, the more pleased Mickey seemed to be. "Gosh, I think you may very well be right! Though the words are different, power does come from the heart. It certainly would make sense for the Organization, who have no hearts."

    POOF!! It was then another interruption came in the form of the sudden appearance of a white owl. Mickey fell flat on his behind as Nyx came out of thin air and perched on the nearby chair. "Sorry for the delay-- Hoot!, the snowy white owl said as she stretched her wings, "But I was researching what you asked and... " the owl soon realized the change of scenery and the fact there was a 'giant, friendly-looking' mouse creature in the room Zachary was lodged in. "I beg your pardon. Am I interrupting anything?" she asked courteously.

    "Um... Nope, not really. " Zachary cleared his throat as he looked to Mickey. "Um, Mickey, this is one of my spirits. The owl spirit Nocturna-- I like to call her Prof. Nyx," he said . "Professor Nyx-- Mickey Mouse."

    Mickey did look a bit worried by the wide-eyed wise owl. "Ooooh.... not another bird who wants to snack on me, is it?" he asked.

    Zachary rolled his eyes and Nyx flapped her wings as if offended. "What foolishness is he talking about? I would never--" Nyx asked but was interrupted by Zachary's sighing.

    "It was a bluff by me and Leo. Then, a bad joke by Aquila. Let's just leave it alone and move on..." Zachary said to try and ease things.

    While concerned about the constant jokes about eating a mouse, especially with a lion in the room, Mickey smiled at the owl. "It's very nice to meet you, Ms. Nyx," he said with a nod of his head.

    "Aww, aren't you the sweetest mouse I ever met," she said kindly-- but let out another hoot at the poor word choice. "Sorry, that was a horrible unintentional pun. Anyway, back to the matter at hand." She soon turned with her talons to face Zachary, the talismans from her wings jingling as she moved. "I researched what I could on those kinds of creatures. However, the closest comparison I was able to gather from them was that they are extremely similar to what we know as a 'homunculus' "

    Astral tilted his little head at the word. Ho..mo..colo? he spoke, clearly messing up the word.

    "No, little one. Homunculus..." the owl said slowly, then turned to Zachary and the others in the room. Ones who could get the point of her search. "They are often products of alchemy to create purely synthetic human beings. Essentially, living dolls. But they lack complicated emotions and certainly do not possess the intelligence to do complicated attacks like what you experienced the previous night. "

    Zachary leaned against the desk as he thought. "I see... that makes sense. It tracks with what Mickey described them," Zachary said and addressed to Nyx. "We learned a bit too. They are called "Nobodies" and they are controlled by a more intelligent "Nobody" that seems to follow a hierarchy system or pack mechanic. Take your pick what to call it. Either way, the knights were right to presume that someone summoned them. "

    "How curious," Nyx replied with a pleased hoot.

    "Well, if they are looking for magic, or rather the magic that are part of a wizard's heart... it would explain why they were drawn to Rose Garden. Next to magical guilds like Fairy Tail, there be no bigger concentration of magic. Rose Garden is FULL of magic," Zachary added with a gesture of his arms. "But what I don't get is why they would attack in the middle of a busy street. It wasn't like something there worth taking or specifc to draw power except lots of locals walking around. If they wanted people with strong magic, they would of attacked a guild in another town, like the Rune Knights or Sabertooth... "

    As Zachary thought, so did Mickey. The brainpower in the room would have began to smell like something burning if they thought any harder, but then Mickey gave a jump at an idea. "Maybe it wasn't them looking for something. If they are following the Organization's orders, they might of been either scouting for something or..."

    "Trying to draw someone out!" Leo spoke up. They all turned to the lion, who now stood up from his place he was lounging against the wall. "It wouldn't benefit them otherwise to just run around in the open like that unless they wanted to lure out someone... and of course I can only think of one real 'target' they would want." The lion's gaze came to Mickey. "Maybe they wanted to lure you out to eliminate you, for example."

    Mickey jumped at the direction to him. "I doubt that. I been chasing after them for a while, along with my friends," Mickey explained, and shook his head. "If I was really their target, then why not just attack me directly? "

    A sigh escaped Zachary as he rubbed his head. They were running out of ways to really find them, or to figure out their goal here in Rose Garden. "Well who else would they try to lure out?"

    Leo's gaze came to Zachary with an intent of mentioning something... but then something caught the lion's eye. Out of the window behind the human boy, he saw a strange, white object out of view of the window's sil. It moved like a flag, but it was shifting-- similar to what they chased before.

    "GRRROWWL!!" Leo roared and lunged forward.

    Zachary gave a frightened scream, Mickey ducked-- and Nyx flew into the air so fast she left some feathers behind in the air-- as Leo plowed past them and charged right for the window. It smashed open as pieces of wood and glass shattered-- and the figure he saw darted away to the left, startled.

    On the ledge of the window, Leo landed on part of the tiled roof, and looked to find the same sneaky white creature from before. This time it slithered over to the alleyway below the building, trying to get away.

    "LEO! Have you lost your mind?!" Zachary shouted, gripping his hair.

    "It's them! The creatures!" Leo growled as he got ready to chase after it. "Zachary, summon a spirit that can follow it! Hurry!" With his roar, he volted from the rooftop and went to follow.

    Zachary sighed as he saw the broken window and torn window curtains. "Well, there goes my room deposit," he commented and rubbed his neck from the stress of the fright.

    "Your lion friend is right. We have to follow it!" Mickey said as he pointed out of the room.

    Zachary nodded and went over to his bed. As he picked up Astral and put him into the hood of his jacket, he moved to the door. "Let's go!" he said. Nyx quickly took flight and landed on Zachary's shoulder, the snowy white owl wanting to see first hand what was going on.

    They rushed as fast as they could out of the inn, explaining to the staff there was an emergency and he ran out of the door. The moment he was outside, he took out his keys. He needed someone who could track the enemy, and while Aquila had sharp sense of vision, he couldn't likely find them without visual sight first. However, Zachary had another option he could call forward. "Open-- Gate of Canis Major!" Zachary called out, holding out a key with a wolf's head at the tip. "SIRIUS!!"

    A flash of light appeared just as Mickey exited the inn and witnessed Zachary summon a Celestial Spirit. "Oh, wow!" he squeaked.

    The smoke cleared to reveal an armored, anthro wolf creature with sharp claws, hulking body and a feral growl and look in his eye as he came out with a howl into the air. As he calmed down he turned and saw Zachary beside him with his key. "Ey, Zachary! Long time no see. Don't suppose you called me out to be your wing-wolf as you go paint the town red, hm?" the wolf said.

    Clearly not seeing Nyx on his shoulder, the owl gave a disapproving hoot at the wolf. "Like I would ever allow you to be a bad influence on him, Sirius," Nyx commented dryly.

    "Sirius, we got no time for jokes and this is an emergency," Zachary explained, his tone stern but concerned, "Leo is already chasing the creature that was spying on us. Can you find him? ANd when you do, use your nose to follow the trail of the creature. "

    "Easy-peasey-lemon-squeezy," the wolf said as he went on all fours, but turned his head. "Speaking of the squeeze, think after as a thank you i can find some lovely ---"

    "Don't you dare finish that sentence!" Nyx hooted angrily, her wings flapping hard that almost smacked Zachary's face. "Now get going or else I will neuter you!"

    "Alright, alright," the wolf barked and took off running. "Don't be a kill-joy, old bird!"

    As he ran, the owl gave a soft hoot of exhaustion. "Sigh.. the youth of some spirits..." she sighed, and Zachary reached up to stroke her feathers to calm her.

    The squabble between the wolf, the human and the owl made Mickey a bit uneased. "]Um, should I be worried about what just happened? " the mouse asked, a puzzled look on his face.

    Zachary turned and raised a hand behind his neck. Nyx on his shoulder just shook her head solemnly and embarrassed. "Sorry about that. Sirius is one of my better scouts but... he has some.. discipline problems," Zachary explained, trying not to use words like 'pervy' or 'perverted' despite how true they were. Astral inside Zachary's hood looked around, clearly clueless and unaware of such bad behavior for being so child-like. "Anyway, let's get going before Leo and Sirius lose their trail!" he said and took off down the street. Mickey quickly followed.

    Up on the rooftops, Leo leapt from each one. The man-lion was quick on his feet and was able to keep going. His eye was kept on the slivers of white he could see on the "Nobody" but he was still slippery to track. Leo had wanted to jump down, grab and squish it into submission for endangering others and spying on them. But if they were all part of a collective, then it was wiser to follow them.

    After a few blocks of following-- Leo sensed another presence to his side.

    "Hey there, pussy cat," Sirius' voice barked. Leo glanced to find the wolf spirit running alongside him on all fours, keeping up with him. "Someone stole your catnip?"

    "Enough with your jokes. You're a better tacker, so track that thing down there. " Leo growled.

    "Gasp-- the great Leo the Lion admits I am better than him at something? Lady luck really has a thing for me, doesn't she?" Sirius teased.

    Leo cast a deadly glare at the wolf. "Just do it, you dumb mutt!"

    The wolf had a soft chuckle but did as requested. He got ahead of Leo and caught on to the scent of the target. That was all that it took as the creature went out of view behind another building. Sirius had a lock on him now and he could follow it at his leisure with a sniff of his nose. "I got him. No way he is getting away," the wolf sneered.

    "Just don't go sniffing for some woman or something, you pervert..." Leo commented.

    The wolf almost tripped over his own feet at the topic. He glared at Leo. "Dude! Two times that happened! Get over it!"

    Able to track them with his magic, and overhearing their bickering, Zachary followed them through the streets and followed the trail that Sirius now led. He wasn't worried. Even for all his bad behavior as a wolf, Sirius knew when to be serious when it was important. Entering another alley among the street of Rose garden was starting to get old but Zachary followed the trail and the path that Sirius followed.

    It wasn't long till Leo dropped down from the rooftops, joining Zachary on the ground. "We're close. Be ready for anything," the lion warned.

    With Mickey and the other spirits with him, Zachary followed Sirius to the end-- finding another enclosed space behind several buildings. This one was an abandoned playground looked to be for the residents in this area. A rusty pair of swings was there, along with an old merry-go-round and slide elsewhere. Further in the back of the wall was a basketball hoop for kids to play with.

    As they stopped, they found Sirius ahead of them, sniffing the area with his nose to the ground. "Grrr... it is here, or it was. The trail ends here," the wolf said, looking around. The strange white thing could be hidden among the playground but they didn't see anything that stuck out among the shaded area.

    Zachary furrowed his brow as he looked down to the large wolf. "You sure you didn't get distracted and lose the trail?" Zachary asked.

    "Now you're just insulting me! I'm telling you, the trail ends here and there is nowhere for that little bugger to go," the wolf growled.

    Out of all of them, Mickey didn't lower his guard or think they lost it. He kept looking around, till he caught something. "There!" the mouse shouted, pointing to the top of the slide.

    On the top behind its metal surface, was the Nobody. The moment it was pointed out, it slithered through the air and darted to a space on the ground-- and oddly vanished in a black portal-- only to blink out.

    "It ran again?" Mickey wondered.

    "No. A mere pawn to a game. It seems you brought a whole bunch of Playmates, haven't you, your majesty?" A voice spoke out, laced with sarcasm that put the rest of them on edge.

    At that moment, another mass of shadow appeared at the back of the playground in the basketball field. The shadow stretched up, forming a kind of portal shape-- and out of it appeared a figure completely cloaked in black. A black trench coat that went all the way down to his feet and a hood. He stepped out and looked to them.

    Zachary took a step back as Sirius and Leo growled, ready to fight from the mysterious person. Even Mickey stepped up, his 'Keyblade" appearing in his hands. Whoever it was, they all knew this person was trouble.

    After a moment, the shrouded figure allowed the darkness behind him to fade and he reached up with his hand. He pulled back the hood he had on-- revealing his face to them. What Zachary saw, he didn't expect in terms of color. The man who revealed his face had short, blonde hair and was roughly in his late 20s or early 30s. He had a clean-cut mustache and a devilishly handsome smile. A single earing was worn on his ear as he looked to them.

    "Luxord!" Mickey cried and brandished his Keyblade, recognizing the sharp man.

    "You know him?" Zachary asked, as his Spirits joined Mickey to the mouse's defense.

    "I sure do," he replied with a stern expression on his face. "He is one of the members of Organization 13! "

    The man in black looked to them as he smirked at Mickey's direction. "You're majesty, It's been too long. Surely is this how you treat an old acquaintance? I figure your time as royalty would teach you general courtesy "

    This, however, made Leo, Sirius and Nyx look a bit surprised as they glanced to mickey. "YOU'RE MAJESTY?" Everyone, Zachary included asked in unison.

    While not having been in that situation, Mickey readied his key towards the man. "Don't play coy with us. What are you planning in this town? Why would the Organization even come here?!"

    The man, Luxord shrugged his shoulders and shook his head. "Sadly, I merely drew the short straw on this little errand. But I suppose finding suitable 'players' like your friends there, will suffice. After all, there are so many lights in this world, so many hearts." he said and rested a hand on his hip. "This world is filled with the lights that only a heart can produce. As you can imagine the Organization would be interested to learn of this, and fill up their ranks with the power of those that shine brighter than others... "

    "I won't let that happen!" Mickey declared aloud.
